"... brevity is the soul of wit ..."
- William Shakespeare


Matthew King used to teach philosophy at York University in Toronto, Canada; he now lives in what Al Purdy called "the country north of Belleville", where he tries to grow things, counts birds, takes pictures of flowers with bugs on them, and walks a rope bridge between the neighbouring mountaintops of philosophy and poetry. His photos and links to some of his poems can be found at

Betrayed by the wind
that sounds their separation
two maple trees rub
each other raw—bound
by scars they've built between them.
